A Remark on BMW algebra, $q$Schur Algebras and Categorification
We prove that the 2variable BMW algebra
embeds into an algebra constructed from the HOMFLYPT polynomial.
We also prove that the $\mathfrak{so}_{2N}$BMW algebra embeds in the $q$Schur algebra
of type $A$.
We use these results
to suggest a schema providing categorifications of the $\mathfrak{so}_{2N}$BMW algebra.

Generic Extensions and Canonical Bases for Cyclic Quivers
We use the monomial basis theory developed by Deng and Du to
present an elementary algebraic construction of the canonical
bases for both the RingelHall algebra of a cyclic quiver and the
positive part $\bU^+$ of the quantum affine $\frak{sl}_n$. This
construction relies on analysis of quiver representations and the
introduction of a new integral PBWlike basis for the Lusztig
$\mathbb Z[v,v^{1}]$form of~$\bU^+$.

Homology TQFT's and the AlexanderReidemeister Invariant of 3Manifolds via Hopf Algebras and Skein Theory
We develop an explicit skeintheoretical algorithm to compute the
Alexander polynomial of a 3manifold from a surgery presentation
employing the methods used in the construction of quantum invariants
of 3manifolds. As a prerequisite we establish and prove a rather
unexpected equivalence between the topological quantum field theory
constructed by Frohman and Nicas using the homology of
$U(1)$representation varieties on the one side and the
combinatorially constructed Hennings TQFT based on the quasitriangular
Hopf algebra $\mathcal{N} = \mathbb{Z}/2 \ltimes \bigwedge^*
\mathbb{R}^2$ on the other side. We find that both TQFT's are $\SL
(2,\mathbb{R})$equivariant functors and, as such, are isomorphic.
The $\SL (2,\mathbb{R})$action in the Hennings construction comes
from the natural action on $\mathcal{N}$ and in the case of the
FrohmanNicas theory from the HardLefschetz decomposition of the
$U(1)$moduli spaces given that they are naturally K\"ahler. The
irreducible components of this TQFT, corresponding to simple
representations of $\SL(2,\mathbb{Z})$ and $\Sp(2g,\mathbb{Z})$, thus
yield a large family of homological TQFT's by taking sums and products.
We give several examples of TQFT's and invariants that appear to fit
into this family, such as Milnor and Reidemeister Torsion,
SeibergWitten theories, Casson type theories for homology circles
{\it \`a la} Donaldson, higher rank gauge theories following Frohman
and Nicas, and the $\mathbb{Z}/p\mathbb{Z}$ reductions of
ReshetikhinTuraev theories over the cyclotomic integers $\mathbb{Z}
[\zeta_p]$. We also conjecture that the Hennings TQFT for
quantum$\mathfrak{sl}_2$ is the product of the ReshetikhinTuraev
TQFT and such a homological TQFT.

Subalgebras which appear in quantum Iwasawa decompositions
Let $g$ be a semisimple Lie algebra. Quantum analogs of the
enveloping algebra of the fixed Lie subalgebra are introduced for
involutions corresponding to the negative of a diagram automorphism.
These subalgebras of the quantized enveloping algebra specialize to
their classical counterparts. They are used to form an Iwasawa type
decompostition and begin a study of quantum HarishChandra modules.
